Homework Help: Motorbike Projectile motion

  1. Oct 2, 2006 #1
    some guy on a moterbike rides up a ramp to clear a gap of 40m, where the flat landing is, situated 15m below the horizontal line of the tip of the ramp. The ramp is at an angle of 53degrees above the horizontal. what velocity must the rider lift off the ramp with?

    I serioulsy have no ideas on where to start with this, ive tried several different scribbles and got nowhere. Some help would be appreciated! thanks

    Start by drawing a picture and then write down what you know (given from problem) and then write down what you need to know. Hopefully this will get you started in the right direction.
